Scope

The idea of the unity of nature was first postulated by the pre-Socratic thinkers. Parmenides and Heracletus argued that the reality is “ONE” and that is what all people perceive with their different minds and senses. Knols in this collection show that we should be extra carefull when we think we “know” the correct answer, because most of the times there is no “one” correct answer…

Harmonia against Dogmatism

Dogmatism of any kind is a bad thing. In the old days of Aristotle and Plato, people believed in the power of the priests running the Delphi Oracle site. Today people believe in the power of the new “priests” of materialism in science. Fortunately there are also many voices against dogmatism who act as a beacon of truth: we do not have to believe in only one thing dogmatically. Everything must be questioned! Materialism, idealism, monism, dualism etc are all part of the great philosophical systems mankind has invented, but not one of them holds the keys to the ultimate truth (if such thing even exists)…
The Knols (articles) in this collection try to show that only if we think freely (that is, as freely as someone who is grown in a specific environment and era can think) can we get closer to the unity of the truth…

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
